The new credit manager of Kay’s department store plans to liberalize the firm’s credit policy. The firm currently generates credit sales of $575,000 annually. The more lenient credit policy is expected to produce credit sales of $750,000. The bad debt losses on additional sales are projected to be 5% despite an additional $15,000 collection expenditure. The new manager anticipates production and selling costs other than additional bad debt and collection expense will remain at the 85% level. The firm is in the 34% tax bracket.,A. If the firm maintains its receivables turnover of 10times, how much will the receivables balance increase?,B. What would be Kay’s incremental after-tax return on investment?,C. Assuming additional inventory of $35,000 is required to support the additional sales compute the after-tax return on investment?,

A random sample of 25 juice boxes from the salesman’s machine yields a standard deviation of 0.09 ounce. A random sample of 16 juice boxes from the company’s current machine yields a standard deviation of 0.13 ounce. What can we conclude? ,,,A,The salesman is correct. We can say with 95% confidence that his machine has less variation from the nominal setting than the company’s current machine,,B,The salesman may be correct. It is not possible to prove he is correct, but indications are that his machine has less variation from the nominal setting than the company’s current machine,,C,We cannot show that the salesman is incorrect. We cannot prove that he is wrong, but indications are that the company’s machine has the same variation as the salesman’s machine,,D,The salesman is incorrect. We cannot say with 95% confidence that the salesman’s machine has less variation from the nominal setting than the company’s current machine,, ,Question: A company wanted to know if a special gas additive truly (and significantly) affected the gas mileage in their company vehicles. Use the data below to determine whether or not the additive significantly affected gas mileage. ,, ,,,A,Yes, because the T-statistic of 3.125 exceeded the T-critical value of 2.365,,B,Yes, because the T-statistic of 4.51 exceeded the T-critical value of 2.365,,C,No, because the T-statistic of 0.563 failed to exceed the T-critical value of 2.365,,D,Yes, because the T-critical value is 1.895,
Few statistics questions
Grim Enterprises is considering a new product line that requires a new machine. It will cost $24,000,000. It will be fully depreciated to a zero book value on a straight line basis over 3 years. The project will generate $75,000,000 in sales each year for 3 years. Operating costs are 81% of sales per year for 3 years. Grim will have $800,000 annually in interest expense as part of the financing. The tax rate is 40%. Grim estimates the unlevered cost of capital as 14%. Note: Costs do not include depreciation or interest expense. ,a. Find the base-case net present value (NPV). ,b. Suppose the project will be financed with $10,000,000 in bonds. The bonds have a 3-year life, a coupon rate of 8% and a yield of 8%. The remaining funds will come from retained earnings. Find the adjusted present value (APV). ,
